10+ Afghan Stitch Crochet Patterns
Also known as Tunisian simple stitch.
The Afghan stitch is used interchangeably with the Tunisian stitch; you might hear people say Afghan stitch or Tunisian simple stitch, but they are in fact the same thing.
The Afghan stitch is an easy crochet stitch that is made using the Tunisian crochet stitch technique. Sound confusing? No worries, we have a video tutorial and 10+ Afghan Stitch Crochet Patterns to help you understand better.
What's great about the Afghan stitch is that you can make a variety of crochet patterns with it including crochet clothing, crochet accessories and even crochet afghan patterns.
What makes Tunisian crochet so unique is that often you will have to use a special Tunisian hook to work up the crochet design. The crochet hook sizes are typically long and smooth and do not have a thumb grip; very similar to a straight knitting needle.
